  3. A recent study has found that higher vitamin D Levels were associated with longer prostate cancer survival. Reference: Mondul, A. et al. Circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D and prostate cancer survival. Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, 2016. The research has also been reported in an article by the US Vitamin D Council This article is probably easier to read than the scientific reference mentioned above.

    What Supplements are you taking in 2016?

    I was looking back at an old discussion in the Forum in February 2014 about supplements. In the course of that discussion john44 asked whether there was a credible repository of information about supplements. Dr Mark Moyad is a leading authority on supplements who spoke to us on our December 2014 teleconference. If you haven't read the minutes of his talk, they're worth a read. Dr Moyad's most recent book is "The Supplement Handbook: A Trusted Expert's Guide to what works & what's worthless" Pomegranate juice is now off my list of supplements after hearing Dr Moyad's comments about it. Please let us know what supplements you are taking in 2016 and why?
  5. Click here for a table which summarises the results of a paper "Nutrition, dietary interventions and prostate cancer: the latest evidence" published in BMC Medicine online. Click here for an interesting post in The Palpable Prostate Blog which contains 2 items: A link to the full text of the paper "Nutrition, dietary interventions and prostate cancer: the latest evidence"; and A report about the UK NCRN Pomi-T study which found a reduction in PSA progression in men taking the Pomi-T supplement (Pomi-T is a commercial supplement containing tumeric powder, pomegranate whole fruit powder, green tea extract and broccoli powder).
  6. The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink has an article which sums up the results of a recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-institutional study on the effects of pomegranate liquid extract or juice on prostate cancer patients: "there may be some benefit to the use of pomegranate juice among men with prostate cancer who carry the Manganese Superoxide Dismutase AA gene — but further studies would be needed to prove this. There appears to be no significant impact of pomegranate juice in other patients, based on this study".
